In a report gathered from online news portal Informationng, Kenneth Okonkwo was not screened out as it was being speculated, he was unable to purchase the Expression of interest/ nomination forms by the deadline date provided.

The source is quoted as saying :

“How can we screen somebody that did not submit a form? What happened was that he was hoping to get a waiver but we told him that the Party does not wave fees. Not just in APC; in every party you go, all the aspirants are expected to come up with their money to fund their nomination forms.

Those that don’t want to come out themselves will tell you a group bought for them. In this case, Kenneth did not purchase his form by the deadline talkless of coming for screening…”

The All Progressives Congress Party had set their fees for Governorship aspirants at N22million. And before the screening Kenneth Okonkwo had once stated that it was his time to rule the state since Jesus Christ gave the instruction and no one can come against the mandate of Christ.

  1. It is so sad for Nigeria that just because someone acted in some stupid movie (living in bondage) where they made people believe that belonging to a cult made them rich. He became a celebrity from it and from there started to “have hallucinations” to be Governor of a state.

    He often reels out University degrees he possess, but each time he opens his mouth, you will fast see that he is bereft of such intellect as to manage a state economy. Few occasions I have managed to read his write-ups, they were so verbose and voluminous that I could not complete any.

    Nigerian celeb popularity is not the same as political popularity, a lot are celebs for some stupid reasons, so sad.

  2. That serves him right by supporting Buhari openly and not condemning the evil acts of Fulani herdsmen even in his own senatorial district. The blood of those innocent people killed by Fulani herdsmen in Nimbo won’t allow him to go far.
